Uncontested divorce in Vermont

Couples in Vermont have two options when it comes to ending their marriage:

  • Contested marriage dissolution. If you and your spouse are unable to reach an agreement on property division, custody and support, as well as other aspects of your divorce, or your spouse simply opposes the dissolution, the court has to help you end your marriage. In such a case, you and your spouse have to hire attorneys that will represent you in court and go through a lot of hearings to testify in front of a judge so that he or she can make a fair decision.
  • Uncontested divorce. If you would like to end things amicably and reach an agreement before you file, this option is for you. An uncontested marriage dissolution usually takes less time to be finalized and is much cheaper, as you may not even need to hire a lawyer if you do not want to. Moreover, your court filing fees will be a third of what you would pay if your divorce was contested.

Choosing the second option, you will definitely save yourself both time and money. However, if you decide to find and fill out the documents on your own, without involving a lawyer or a professional service in the process, there is a little chance that you can do it correctly from the first try. What is the solution to this problem? Using OnlineDivorcer!

Our service is one of the pioneers in the online divorce market that has helped thousands of customers throughout the years. Working with us, you will receive a full package of documents that would be chosen and filled out specifically for your dissolution case.

Filing for divorce in Vermont without a lawyer

A dissolution of marriage without a lawyer can be completed in the following steps:

  • Make sure you meet the residency requirements. In Vermont, at least one of the spouses must have lived in the state for 6 months before filing. However, you will not be able to file until one of you has resided in the state for a full year.
  • Download and fill out all the required documents.
  • File the forms with the family division of the Superior Court in the county where you or your ex reside and pay the filing fee.
  • Serve the paperwork to your spouse. You can do it by mail or by asking a sheriff to deliver the documents.
  • In Vermont, you and your ex-spouse have to attend the final hearing. It is usually quite brief as you will only need to answer some questions of a judge.
  • If your paperwork is in order, you will be granted a divorce in 3 months.

How to complete a do it yourself divorce in Vermont?

DIY divorce in Vermont seems like a good option for those who don’t want to ask for any help at all. However, it is not as simple and quick of a process as people often believe it to be. Here are some facts about a DIY dissolution that will help you understand the complexities of doing everything on your own:

  • First of all, you need to check whether you qualify to get an uncontested divorce in Vermont: 1) you and your husband or wife should have reached full agreement regarding the dissolution process; 2) you have to meet the VT residency requirements.
  • Visit the official website of your state or any other reputable source of information and look for anything divorce-related. It is also important to search for the forms required for your specific case. If you do not know what forms are mandatory or suitable for your situation, do a thorough research or get legal help.
  • If you have children, check: 1) the state child custody and support guidelines; 2) the required child-related forms; 3) schedule and requirements for mandatory parenting classes.
  • Now you can fill out the forms. Do not forget to check out any unknown terminology to avoid any misunderstandings when completing the paperwork. Please note that if you file at least one incorrect form, the whole package will be rejected by the court.
  • Print and sign the paperwork. Please mind that some papers might have to be signed in front of a notary.

Getting a divorce in Vermont with a child

Child support and custody are among the divorce-related aspects that have to be resolved by the spouses to start a divorce process:

  • In Vermont, the courts use the phrase “parental rights and responsibilities” to denote custody. Having physical responsibility presupposes living with the child, while having legal responsibility means making decisions about important aspects of the child’s life.
  • In the state, both parents are eligible to have legal and physical responsibility until the court issues a custody order. If parents are in a full agreement, the court will probably accept their agreement unless it contradicts the child’s best interests.
  • When trying to reach an agreement, parents should not forget to discuss the new living arrangements, how kids will move between houses, what schedule would be best for children and if it will change as they grow older, and how to meet the needs of kids in the best way possible.
  • The child support payment you will propose to a court should be based on calculations made according to the state guidelines on the matter. VT guidelines take income, living arrangements, and child’s special needs into account, which implies that parents will end up with a reasonable sum upon making the calculations.
